Big Al 2016

See Big Al at the Sarasota, Florida Memorial Day Parade!


May 28, 2018

The 2018 Sarasota Memorial Day Parade’s theme is: “All Gave Some. Some Gave All.” 130 band members from Blair High School from Omaha, Nebraska will join in the parade and the Sarasota Military Academy will represent local area high schools. The Sarasota Patriotic Observance Committee encourages all Sarasota  residents to line Main Street as we recognize the sacrifices, courage, and patriotism demonstrated by our Viet Nam Veterans. Parade organizers are hoping for an Air Force fly over at 10 a.m. The parade starts at exactly 10 a.m. from Osprey and Main in Sarasota. There will be a fitting Memorial Ceremony at 11:00 a.m. at Chaplain J. D. Hamel Park at the West end of Main Street.
